Jeff Kent gets the night off as the Dodgers go for the sweep. Julio Lugo takes his place, and is hitting third. I'm sure Grady has his reasons for doing this, I'm just not sure what they are.

Poor Russel Martin is pressed into duty again despite catching seven innings on his day off.

After last nights game, Wilson Betemit is now the only Dodger regular with an isolated power over .200

Prior to the game, Tim Hamulack was sent back to Vero Beach and Hong-Chih Kuo was called up. A good move considering how much work the bullpen got last night. Let's hope the control Kuo developed in Vegas sticks in the majors.
